My friends and I love ocean swimming. Living on Kauai allows us to do it year round. During the summer months, the waters are calmer on the north shore and that’s where we focus all of our swims. This past summer was especially fun since we made it a point to cover most of the entire north shore coastline.

Last Saturday was our last “adventure swim” for the north shore for the summer.  We decided to go from Queen’s Bath to Waikoko, a nice little Iron distance. We ran down to Queen’s Bath, jumped in from the rocks and were immediately greeted by turtles. As we rounded the corner of Queen’s Bath to head out, there was a stunning double rainbow. Pinch me! Come on…turtles and rainbows – every swim should start out so dreamy. And it was a great swim. The water was calm and crystal clear. It really is amazing to “float” above the landscape of the ocean floor and look at a world through a blue green hue as turtles and fish “fly” around their habitat. The rest was a smooth swim to Waikoko. We all felt so blessed to live on Kauai where we can live these adventures year round.

Our friend Naomi Hild kayaked out to us and escorted us to Waikoko. She even captured some great photos that she was happy to share. Enjoy!

This swim is not for everyone.  Consult with a lifeguard prior to swimming in our waters – and we always recommend swimming or snorkeling where lifeguards are present.
